. the washington post reports when obama does media interviews these days, it's not with a newspaper. tv gets the bulk of the president's personal attention from his frequent appearances on "60 minutes" to mtv to chit chats with local stations around the country. obama may be the least newspaper-friendly president in a generation. "the post's" last interview with the president? 2009. the wall street journal? 2009. the "new york times". s 2010. the l.a. times and boston globe, never. his hometown papers, amazingly, no love for chitown. a big fat sfwler. here now to discuss the fourth estate is part of our weekly up now extravaganza, mr. chris hayes. >> how are you, alex? >> i'm great. so, chris, let's talk first about -- let's go in reverse order here. in terms of the white house and the question of transparency, where do you -- where do you sit on this? i notice you were reacting to those statistics, and didn't know whether it was indig nation or shut your trap, white house press corps. >> there's a lot of -- i think it's actually a complicated story. first of all, yes, he gives less intervie

. democrats want the fight. the republicans perhaps don't. fantastic article today in "washington examiner" which i read all the time. >> no, you don't. >> by bryon york, the effect of boehner's argument is to make obama seem reasonable in comparison. after all, the president certainly agrees that boehner that the sequester cuts threaten national security and jobs. the difference is that obama wants to avoid them. could the gop message on the sequester be anymore self defeating? are they hurting the brand in the fight? >> you have to understand the back story. the gop thought they had a winning hand last year, the message would win them back the white house. it didn't work out that way and then they found themselves in a really difficult situation the end of the year facing tax increases across the board, obama had the upper hand there and they caved in a way that was incredibly painful for them. and so they looking coming out of january, they made the decision that they would rather stand and fight on the sequester than the debt ceiling. fight on the sequester to say in nine days that the
days, what washington is calling the sequester. and keep in mind that plan actually originated in the obama white house but was approved by the house and the senate. in front of a sea of first responders in washington, the president today lashed out at republicans in congress saying if legislators don't come to an agreement, emergency services will take a hit. that was just one of a number of possible consequences the president listed off if the cuts are allowed to begin march 1st. he talked about fewer police and firefighters, longer airport security lines, lost jobs, criminals going free, teachers being laid off. democrats in the senate have proposed replacing the forced spending cuts with reduced defense spending and end to agriculture subsidies and more tax revenue for millionaires, but house republicans have rejected any increased taxes as a solution. here's what the president had to say today about that. >> so far at least the idea is that the republicans have proposed asks nothing of the wealthiest americans or biggest corporations, so the burden is all on first responde
peak hours because we have fewer controllers on staff. >> reporter: meantime in washington, president obama plans to speak with congress this weekend to avert another crisis. but both sides are ramping up the blame game. listen to what the president said about the looming sequester during a press conference yesterday. >> i never think that anything's inevitable. we always have the opportunity to make the right decisions. my hope is is that we can see a different course taken by congress. this should be a no-brainer. >> reporter: solutions the president is confident will work. but unless he can cut a deal with congress, alex, we could see drastic changes kick in this time next week. >> all right, michelle frandsze thank you for that. >> joining me now with reaction republican congresswoman marcia blackburn. representative blackburn, nice to have you back to the show. >> good to be with you, laenale >> the president says this is a no-brainer and says the congress can stop the sequester at any time. how do you respond to that? >> well, i find it all very interesting. because we didn't ha
. >>> to washington now where there are just seven days to go before wide-reaching budget cuts take effect. president obama has reached out to top republican leaders to try to kickstart some talks. the phone call marked the first time they've talked on the issue since the fiscal cliff deal next year. the president says it never should have gotten to this point. >> there's no other profession, no other industry where people wait until the 11th hour to solve these big problems. >> but neither side is reporting any progress. instead, aides simply exchanged some taunts via twitter. not a lot of reason for hope here that they're going to get this done. but there's still a few days. >> like the president said, there's nowhere else in the world where you think about it, if it's going to affect that many people and so much money is on the line that we wait for this long for anything to happen. in fact, today our abc's jonathan karl spoke to secretary leon panetta about these cuts. he said if they go into effect, it would turn the united states into a second rate power. >> strong words there. president obama
through this heartbreak. >> this ad comes in the middle of president obama's push for tougher gun control legislation. abc's reena ninan is in washington this morning. reena, does the white house get a sense they're gaining traction on this issue, despite all of the opposition in congress? >> reporter: all the issues are pushing of all of them. they believe universal background checks might be the most likely to get pushed through in congress. there's still very much a tough uphill battle. but what is helping the white house, unfortunately, are the sad, sad cases of these shootings. sandy hook. yesterday, we saw the president actually break down and cry as he was delivering some awards to people who were there, adults involved in this situation, with that shooting. universal background checks, dan, the most likely to see some action here in washington. >> on another note, we're hearing these reports overnight that a supposed insider is saying that he knows for sure that it's a done deal that hillary clinton is going to run for president. any truth to this at all? >> reporter: we are looki

worry about a congress being jammed, to support a nominee that the "washington post" said is to the left of the obama administration's foreign policy agenda. on the fringe of the senate. you are talking about a person whose voting record shows softness on iran and antagonism toward israel beyond belief. he'd be the most antagonistic senator toward the state of israel in history, so the fact that we reported in -- tuesday, wanted a cloture vote thursday was unreasonable and we voted senator kerry on the same day because there was no controversy and offer to the white house to hold the vote until after the break, and, if nothing new came out we'd vote for cloture, senator john mccain and myself, but that wasn't good enough and they wanted to force the issue so i'm glad that we have got more time to look and i'm glad he answered my question, about a very disturbing comment he allegedly made. so i think we're doing our job to scrutinize, i think, one of the most unqualified, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> chris: well, let me ask you a question about that. if
for what's going on right now. president obama is to blame for demagoguing washington monumenting, the small 1% cuts are going to be on the most important things and republicans to blame for acting like military cuts are the huge job creator. the truth is both are hugely to blame for not handling big issues, big problems addressing this as one big deficit reduction package. not this small little force cut project. >> we've all played the blame game ourselves. i didn't want to be accused of being a hypocrite. that standoff continues on spending cuts. there are signs are common ground on marriage equality on display in this new ad from the respect for marriage coalition. >> none of wus want to be told we can't marry the person we love. growing majority of americans believe it's time to allow marriage for gay and lesbian couples. >> when couples are committed they ought to have the same rights everyone else has. >> allowing them to live together with the protection of the law it seems to me is the way we should move in this country. >> freedom means freedom for everyone. >> it featur

and their take to president's role. >> these cuts in washington now as sequestration, are you willing to see first responders lose their job and teachers laid off? >> they were president obama's idea. >> the so-called "sequester" was obama's idea in the first place. he signed it law. >> white house recommended this. in august 2011. >> bob: to sell people this is obama's idea, it was his idea. but that is not what the public believes. the public believes -- >> andrea: do you hear yourself? >> bob: i am talking as a politician. is up why obama is doing what he is doing and sequestration being obama's idea. it doesn't matter. it does not matter. republicans are taking the fall. >> eric: i don't agree with you on that. >> andrea: the ad is bel beltway. you can go back and forth and play the blame game. okay. it's obama's fault. we know that. jay carney admitted it. what are you going to do about it? republicans would be better sevened cutting a deal on entitlements. they have the capital and they should do it. they are not pushing hard enough. your fault, your fault. who cares. it's not moving a
